Please join us for an evening of conversation and music. Barry Day and Foster Hirsch will discuss Noël Coward on (and in) Theatre, followed by a musical performance from Steve Ross. Books will be available for purchase.
Noël Coward on theatre was as dazzling and entertaining as his masterful plays and lyrics. Here his ideas and opinions on the subject are brilliantly brought together in an extraordinary collection of commentary, lyrics, essays, and asides on everything having to do with the theatre and Coward’s dazzling life in it.
The book Noël Coward wanted, promised, threatened to write—and never did. Ingeniously, deftly compiled, edited, and annotated by Barry Day, Coward authority and editor of The Noёl Coward Reader and The Letters of Noёl Coward.
Barry Day was born in England and received his M.A. from Balliol College, Oxford. He has written and produced plays and musical revues showcasing the work of Noël Coward, the Lunts, Oscar Wilde, and others. Day is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Trustee of the Noёl Coward Foundation and was awarded the Order of the British Empire.
